Mangrove Lagoon


The Mangrove Lagoon in St. Thomas is a Wildlife Sanctuary and Marine Reserve.

Surrounded by small islands built up of mangrove trees, the area plays an important role in providing a home for organisms to live and flourish. The result is healthy offshore coral reefs, diverse reef fish populations, and shoreline stabilization. Mangrove trees thrive on saltwater and are adapted to live in coastal environments. Acting as a sort of “nutrient switchboard operator,” mangrove forests transfer matter and energy from the land in the form of leaves and branches to marine ecosystems as food. And their dense and complicated root systems provide a home for many different types of underwater creatures, including juvenile fish, who use the nooks and crannies to hide from potential predators.
